Buying a New Kitchen Your Guide to getting it right: Having decided that your kitchen is in need of a revamp you now have to plan what features it will have.

Bedrooms and Bedroon Design / Planning: Of all the rooms in your home, the bedroom is the one that should exude warmth, peace and tranquillity.

Equally important are the decisions that turn your bedroom from a functional space into a welcoming, calming retreat that feeds your soul and reflects your personality...[

>> I am going to have a new kitchen in my flat, so arranged for some companies to come and give me a quote. They spent a few hours with me and in the end produced a total cost, but did not provide me with a breakdown of this - is this normal practice, or should I be able to request a detailed per item quote? [read more...]

>> On a recent TV programme about cowboy kitchen fitters an installation was described as illegal because a wall cupboard was too close to the top of a gas hob. What is the minimum distance allowed and which regulations define such things? [

>> We have just bought a nice flat - Victorian conversion, which still has all the original cornices and coving. Now, it seems to make sense to fit a timeless kitchen for resale purposes in the future, but I am having a real problem deciding whether to install a modern (Nolte spot range for example) or a kitchen keeping in with the Victorian style? [

>> One question I have is about connecting gas cookers. If I have a gas cooker which has a bayonet style twist on/off fitting - the type that seals when you disconnect it - am I allowed to connect the new cooker myself or do I still need a CORGI chap? [

>> Hi, we recently purchased a FIY [fit it yourself] kitchen. However, NOTHING came with instructions. [That lovely Company featured on Rogue Traders last week!]. I have managed do do most things myself except plumbing and electrics. But, how do you fit the door hinges to the cabinet sides. The doors are pre-drilled for the hinges but the cabinets are not. I cannot get the doors to close fully, no matter what screws I adjust. Please help a very desperate lady. [
